Toledo continues to be one of the surprise teams in the nation, moving to 12-0 with an 85-66 victory over Coppin State on Saturday at Savage Arena in Toledo, Ohio.
Entering the weekend, the Rockets were one of nine teams in the country that were undefeated. This is Toledo's best start since its 1966-67 team was 14-0.
The Rockets' victory over Coppin State (4-8), which lost for the fourth straight game, matched their 12-0 start in 1940-41 for the program's second-best beginning.
Toledo never trailed.
With 4:59 left in the game, the Eagles did pull to within 71-58 on a basket by junior guard Daquan Brickhouse. Toledo closed strong, however, outscoring the Eagles, 14-8, down the stretch.
